I am trying to learn webservices and very much confused where to start from, I started with the oracle docs and could not concentrate much on it i feel the docs are very dry for a newbie, Can anyone suggest me a user freindly book like servlets and JSP by Cathy. Any tutorial or any pdf. I dont even know what to start with either JAX RPC or JAXWS
